The 13 Reasons Why producer has attended the celebration every year since its start and hosted the event twice.

The pop star has attended the event every year since it's start 

"As maybe some of you know, I had a kidney transplant this year and so many people from across the country reached out and they offered their support," she told the crowd. "And others told me how hearing my story helped them find their own courage and helped other people want to get involved and donate. They reminded me how lucky I am to have a platform where I can share with you guys and I can pay the love forward."
